Making connections on the Control Deck
  • The vertical and horizontal A-B-C pads of each JPS cell are interconnected on the PCB. When a component is mounted, the cell’s unused pads can be used to interconnect components on the Control Deck. For example, you could add attenuation to an input from a jack socket.
  • Each JPS cell has a D-pad along with the A-B-C pads. The Control Deck’s D-pads are connected to form the D bus, which can be used as a common ground on the Control Deck. Handy for grounding all the jack socket sleeves.
  • The A-B-C pads connect to the breadboard connector, which allows signals to be routed to a breadboard via pin headers. The position of each JPS cell on the edge connector is annotated on the rear of the control deck.

  • The N8 Eurorack breadboard is mounted perpendicular to the 6HP Control Deck using the 2.54mm pitch pin headers included in the kit.
  • The 40-pin female header is mounted on the rear of the Control Deck.
  • The 40-pin, right-angled, male header is normally mounted on the front of the breadboard along with the Eurorack power header but can be mounted on the rear.
  • The pre-drilled panel is attached to the control deck with the washers and hex-nuts supplied with pots and jacks.

Eurorack Prototype Breadboard

  • N8 Eurorack solderable breadboards follow the familiar sprung breadboard layout, scaled to fit between Eurorack’s 3U rails. 
  • Edge connectors are provided for mounting the Control Deck along with dedicated pads for a Eurorack power header and filter capacitors. 
  • The traditional sprung breadboard’s power rails have been slimmed down to provide an alternating +12V / ground supply on the left and -12V / ground supply on the right.
